In a recent interview with TMZ Sports, UFC Heavyweight Champion, Daniel Cormier admitted he is disappointed that he won’t be fighting Brock Lesnar.
The two men had been highly rumored to be fighting at some point this year until Lesnar revealed he was retiring from MMA, with the Beast choosing to stick with WWE instead.
“I was disappointed,” Cormier told TMZ Sports. “I wanted to fight Brock. I’ve known Brock for a long time. I’ve always been a fan of his and we had that great moment at UFC 226. So the build was gonna be fun, but you can only really worry about things that you can control. I can’t control that he doesn’t want to fight anymore. He’s done.”
